The purpose of this self-study airway package is to provide a review of the anatomy and physiology of the airway and surrounding structures, discuss some of the pathophysiology that may affect the assessment and maintenance of the airway, and methods to manage these issues. It will also include some “pearls of wisdom” to help manage these patients more effectively while decreasing our stress and improving patient outcomes.
Content for spring 2019 will be a case study, skills stations (level of authorization dependant) CVAD, Chest needle decompression, Intranasal administration, Salbutamol MDI with Spacer and CPAP. Cannabis introduction and 4 practical scenarios.
This is a practice quiz resource for all medics. These quizzes are not marked and are only for practice purposes only.
Each quiz has 10 randomly generated questions that are selected from a library of questions at your certification level. Every time you enter/make an attempt at the quiz there will be different questions and/or in a different order allowing you to make as many attempts as you like.
This course is an update to that presented a number of years ago and explores the topic of the Pediatric Patient. This self study on pediatric patients has two reading modules and a quiz.
In Module 1 of this series, we present a variety of approaches and techniques to successfully facilitate prehospital pediatric assessment. We also examine children through the various stages of their development and we provide general age-specific assessment skills that address the unique aspects and needs of each child in those different developmental stages.
In Module 2, we examine the pediatric assessment in greater detail in order to successfully formulate a solid working diagnosis, and we provide succinct parameters that will assist the paramedic to identify the most appropriate treatment plan. Your understanding of this information will form the cornerstone for a successful prehospital care approach to children.
Topics this Fall include: presentations on the new Analgesia and Combative patient medical directives and a case study; skill station with evaluation on (level of authorization dependent) airway management; skill station introducing the REVERT Valsalva manourvre and reviewing Buretrols; and two practical scenarios.
This is the Analgesia and Combative Patient Medical Directive self learning package created by the Provincial OBHG Education Subcommittee working group. This is a requirement for your self study Spring 2018. Please complete both self directed packages and then complete the certificate section that will provide you and CEPCP proof of your completion for our records

This course contains materials for our Fall 2017 CME that was created in partnership with the Ontario Association of Midwives and relates to both the ACP and PCP Scopes of Practice . This self-directed course is open to all CEPCP paramedics as a review and for all CEPCP Paramedics to refresh and reflect on their current practice and CEPCP's expectations.
The Fall 2017 CME will be entirely dedicated to the ALS-PCS Emergency Childbirth Medical Directive as found in the ALS-PCS version 4.2. In preparation for the in class training, our self-study package for 2017 was a series of modules that each paramedic must complete prior to attending Fall 2017 CME Course.
